In order to remain registered with us, registrants must continue to meet the standards that we set for their profession. These standards are how registrants' 'fitness to practise' is determined.
There are four sets of standards.
Standards of conduct, performance and ethics
We set standards of conduct, performance and ethics which apply to the professionals we regulate. You will learn about these standards on your programme.
The standards also apply to people who are applying to become registered with us. If you are applying to be registered, we will ask you to sign a declaration to confirm that you have read and will keep to the standards once you are registered.
The standards help us make decisions about the character of the people who apply to join our Register, and also in cases where we decide whether someone is fit to practise.
Standards of proficiency
Standards of education and training
Standards of continuing professional development
